Hi, I am wondering if my cpu too hot?  when running CPUID HWMonitor software it  indicates my cpu is at around 41C idle then when playing game it stays around 72-85C. shall I be worried?

Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.7 GHz (4.7 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series)95WBX80684I78700K Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630

here is the link to my Intel PDT results

Your CPU maximum permissible temperature is 100 DEG C. Please refer to Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor (T Junction). So working in temperatures "41C idle then when playing game it stays around 72-85C" will not endanger your CPU.

This is normal temperature range for CPU.

Oh really?  I was worried cause when I did some research most people who own that CPU claim to have it idle at 32-38C and under heavy load only reached 60ish very few 70ish,  but mine constantly hitting 80+.  but if that's within the Intel's norm and will not damage my computer with 80C+ then maybe I do not need to worry.
